Scoville Scale

The Scoville Scale measures how spicy a hot pepper might be. All of our peppers online include their number on the Scoville scale in their description. Starting at the top, the scale goes from hottest to mildest. These numbers are approximations based on the growing conditions of the peppers. Make sure you check out this scale before deciding on which pepper you want to purchase!
